So we decided to do a "DIY Little Girl Katy Perry Costume"-- something age appropriate that captures the fun and creativity of the singer. Here was our inspiration for the project...
I bought white fabric, it is a thick cotton. Using the top of another dress as a guide, I made a pattern. The top of the dress is lined and has bows that tie on the shoulder. Once I had sewn the dress, I painted and cut styrofoam balls. Then I let the balls dry for 48 hours.
Finally, I glued them to the front of the dress.
The blue wig is from Party City and so are the little gloves. To give the dress some 'umph'- she is wearing a pettiskirt underneath. Then a little hot pink lipstick and mascara complete the look.
I am really happy with how it turned out. She looks like she came straight from Candy Land. The perfect mix of Katy Perry 'rockstar' with the sweetness of a little girl.
Needless to say, she didn't want to the take costume off! Bring on Halloween!
